Vix Muniz lives and works in New York City and Rio de Janeiro. Muniz is best known for recreating famous imagery from art history and pop culture with unexpected, everyday objects, and photographing them.  Each work is a photograph taken of an arrangement of hundreds of other photographs that represent a photograph… and they are huge. Below, find full images and “details” of four works in the show.  Muniz says that when he takes photographs, he intuitively searches for “a vantage point that would make the picture identical to the ones in my head before I’d made the works”, so that his photographs match those mental images.
